If you’ve visited Sac Paws and/or Sac Moms Club lately you may have noticed a new feature: Sacramento Connect widgets. The widgets show the latest posts from our partners by category. We will be adding many more Sacramento Connect widgets on Sacbee.com—on the homepage, in sports, gardening, food & wine, etc.—during the next month, so stay tuned.
We have also launched a new Sacramento Connect feature in the Saturday print edition of The Bee. Check out the back of the A section this weekend for a column featuring photos, posts from the network, and announcements about our newest partners.
